Issue

The issue is that the former president of the US has neglected to serve his country. He has let people struggle and become homless. he has let people starve and suffer. The president is supposed to help the people of his country survive, but he has yet to do so. I agree with the message that this song is sending becasue i veiw the president as someone that is supposed to help us survive and get through hard times. Unfortunatly no president has shown us that they care enough to do so. This song has made an impact on the issue of any government authority helping the people of this so called great nation. It has made an impact by allowing the public to hear what their leader has done for them and he has done nothing. In conclusion the president of the US has neglected to help the citizens prosper as a society as a mother bird neglecting to nurture her young.
